1. Castle Combe

The Cotswold village of Castle Combe just cries out to have its photograph taken. Walk through the village passing the honey-coloured stone houses to the small brook. You’ll probably recognise the view from several films too!

2. Stonehenge

You can’t make a visit to Wiltshire without heading to our World Heritage Site. For a top photography tip, we suggest you book onto an inner circle tour of Stonehenge at dawn or dusk to get the sunrise/sunset.

The Avenue. Happy place.

3. Avebury

Also part of the World Heritage Site, Avebury is the lesser-known stone circle. The landscape here is free to roam and as with Stonehenge, makes a great sunrise spot!

4. The Town Path, Salisbury

Follow the likes of Constable with views across to Salisbury Cathedral from Salisbury's Town Path. A great spot to visit, whatever the season. Crisp mornings are pretty magical here!

5. The Pewsey Vale

Take in views across stunning Wiltshire countryside from the Pewsey Vale. With pretty villages, rolling hills and panoramas like above, it's hard not to photograph it!

6. Caen Hill Locks

Watch the colourful narrowboats travel slowly up and down Caen Hill Locks on the Kennet & Avon Canal, Devizes. A tranquil spot but with plenty of photographic opportunities.

7. Lacock village

The National Trust village of Lacock has a rich photographic history, and in fact is the birthplace of the photographic negative! The architecture of the Abbey and the village houses and shops really does give you a lot of inspiration.

8. Stourhead Gardens

Stourhead is one of the National Trust’s most iconic gardens. Explore the grottos and temples, take a walk on the wider estate to King Alfred’s Tower and soak up the nature. Stourhead is open all year around and is stunning whatever the season, however it is most noted for its spectacular autumn colours.

9. Imber village

Imber village sits in the heart of Salisbury Plain military training area and access to it is only granted at certain times of the year. The village was requisitioned for World War 2 and all that remains today is St Giles’ Church, the exteriors of some of the old village buildings, and more modern buildings built by the Ministry of Defence. If you like eerie shots then this is the place for you. Please ensure that you check opening times before you visit though and stick to the signed roads and footpaths.

10. Bradford on Avon

Think Bath but without the crowds! Bradford on Avon is built out of the same Bath stone and its position on the side of a hill means it offers great vistas across the town. The Kennet & Avon Canal passes on the edge of the town centre and the Town Bridge over the River Avon is an iconic Instagram spot too.
